July 14th through July 28th
Where is God when tragedy and suffering strike? When the ground shakes, and a poor nation’s economy is destroyed; when the waters rise, washing away a community’s hopes and dreams; when a child suffers neglect and abuse; when violence tears apart individuals or nations; where is God? Can we trust God when things seem out of control in our world? If God is all powerful, and if each one of us is a beloved child of God, then how can God allow tragedy and suffering to infest his creation? Rejecting simplistic answers and unexamined assumptions, this sermon series lays out core ideas for comprehending God’s plan for the world.
Week 1: God and Human Suffering.
